"You will learn more about who you are, what's most important to you, how to listen to yourself and develop the skill of guiding your own life."
Dr. Michael Douglas Talk Therapy LA
Transform Your Boundaries provides a hands-on experience that gets you, the reader, immediately involved in developing your very own boundary skills in your everyday life. You will learn how to tackle boundaries of all shapes and sizes from the simplest to the most extreme. What was at one time insurmountable can become easily doable through developing the tools necessary, which are clearly explained by Sarri through examples. You’ll recognize parts of yourself as you read.
The book follows seven people: Wendy - The Workaholic; Davis -The Caretaker;
Lisa –The Sacrificer; Jen - The Lover; Stuart - The Isolator; Maggie - The Protector;
and Raven - The Numb-er; who are each working on building boundaries in his or her own lives.
Perhaps some of them already sound familiar to you.
As you read their stories you will see how each learns the essential boundary-building skills and how each person applies the skills a little differently. The book also serves as a journal and workbook. Each chapter ends with an “Apply It” section, which poses pertinent questions to the reader along with blank journal pages for written responses and notes.
For Healthcare and Human Service Providers"I have been in health care system leadership for over three decades. I read in depth about Caregiver Burnout and resilience. With that said, I want to recommend Sarri Gilman’s most recent book entitled Naming and Taming Overwhelm. It is Outstanding!!! It is a major contribution to the literature on 'MD and Caregiver Burnout.'
Author Sarri Gilman has authored an insightful work defining 'overwhelm' in healthcare and naming it as the root of the crisis of caregiver burnout. Wow! This work needs to reach healthcare leaders!"
If you work in health and human services, you know how susceptible you and your colleagues are to stress and compassion fatigue. The risk factors and occurrences of becoming overwhelmed are widespread and systemic. However, the industry generally addresses only the symptoms, rather than treating the problem holistically.
Naming and Taming Overwhelm will help you recognize if or when your're becoming overwhelmed and provide simple steps to protect and care for yourself.
Learn how to tune into your own personal signals as well as develop techniques for listening to and helping your colleagues who may experience their own early signs of feeling overwhelmed.
